Opening Wednesday, May 30th
Panopticon Gallery is proud to present Planes, Trains and Automobiles
, a group exhibition on display from May 30 - July 9, 2012 featuring photographs by Keith Johnson, Candace Gaudiani, Frank Armstrong, Andrew MK Warren, Gustav Hoiland, Todd Sanchioni and Ken Harvey.
Through this exhibition we take a look at the marvels of the transportation industry, from the picturesque views taken through the windows of trains as they cross the United States, to large grids of airplanes, covered cars and rusted-out jalopies - even a vintage race car makes an appearance.
The Opening Reception and Book Signing with Candace Gaudiani will be held on Wednesday, May 30th, 5:30-7:30pm.
IN THE PRIVATE ROOM
TWOSOMES: Photographs by Mark Chester
May 30 - July 9th, 2012
Mark Chester has been a professional photographer since 1972. His photographs and/or feature stories have been published in the New York Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Los Angeles Times, and The Chicago Tribune among other periodicals.
Photographs from Chester's latest book, Twosomes, published by Un-Gyve Press in 2011, feature pairings of photographs from decades of traveling the globe. Through Chester's photographs he has captured, in a sense, the unrelated nature of chance. The side-by-side placement of the photographs feed off of each other, and to some, might appear amusing and a bit tongue-in-cheek.

Emerging Artist | FEATURED
One of the newest photographers getting ready to graduate from the New England School of Photography is Cori-lynne Forbes.
Cori-lynne's Distortion series is a study of the changing body. As she explained,
"I feel that am trapped in a body that is physically broken, so it's easy for me to break and distort the figures that I photograph. I photograph how my mind and body feel - both physically and emotionally at that time. I am often scared, and feel nothing less than a dark figure taking up space and every element of my body feels completely unconnected. I want the viewer to see that these parts should not be connected, but then see a few single, beautifully placed images that help hold it together.
This work is not something that can be looked at piece by piece - The work needs to be seen grouped together. Some things look like they fit like a puzzle, while some don't. I wish I didn't put some pieces where they are."
We will have images from her Distortion series on display from May 30 - July 9th.
